Why Saturday Morning Praise?
Saturday Morning Prayer
Heavenly Father, I thank you for this day. I declare that this is the day that you have made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. Lord Jesus, you are my Prince of Peace.
Thank You for calming the raging storm in my soul when You took up residency within my heart, as You removed my sins and replaced them with Your righteousness.
Thank you that you have bequeathed your peace to me, not as the world gives, so that my heart won’t be troubled or afraid while the torrential waves of my personal difficulties attempt to shatter my sound state of mind.
Trusting the Lord to work it all out
You have promised to keep me in perfect peace when my mind and heart are fixed upon You. So, I choose today to not focus on the problems that confront me daily.
Help me to wholeheartedly seek You and rely on Your Holy Word, so that I will fully trust You to work out the problems that greatly concern me and not take matters into my own hands.
You have overcome the world and You will also help me to overcome my troubles. It is in our weaknesses that Your power is made most visible in our lives.
I thank you for the trials common to all followers of Christ. I call out for deliverance and yet endure the discomfort and affliction as a true soldier of the faith, all the while being “joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer.”
Because of the blood of Christ, I can overcome the opposition of the enemy and triumph in faith to the glory of God the Father. We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
